1982

Windowpane arrived for this Election Day gig, found that the place couldn't open until the polls closed, and waited outside.  Photo by Alena Loiselle courtesy of Kurt Hoffman, lying on the sidewalk.  The others are, from left to right, Bob Michael, soundman Sam David, Doug Heaps, and Bob Loiselle.  Scroll down for another photo from this evening.

Windowpane rocks out an attentive audience at the Electric Banana on November 2, 1982.  The band earned $12 for a night's work.  Johnny Banana's favorite song was the 12-minute "Sam's Jam."  That's a dollar a minute for his favorite song.  Photo by Alena Loiselle courtesy of Kurt Hoffman.

1982 saw concerts in Pittsburgh by Elvis Costello and the Clash at the old Stanley Theater on consecutive nights in August.   Talk Talk opened for Costello.  Nine days later, Steel Pulse played the Stanley with Stick Against Stone opening.  The Clash would return to Pittsburgh on October 16 at Carnegie Mellon University with the Core opening.  The Police and Bow Bow Wow performed at the Civic Arena in April.  Ticket stubs from Joe's personal collection.
